Kensai International & EasyRoyalties Software

In 2008 one of the largest art museums in the United States engaged our services to help them select royalty software. After evaluating several systems they selected Easy Royalties (known at that time as That’s Rights!).

After selecting the royalty software they engaged our services to manage the implementation. The implementation included UAT testing (user acceptance testing), software customization, data conversion (including converting several thousand royalty contracts), parallel testing (where we compared royalty statements from the old to those generated by EasyRoyalties) and on-site staff training. The implementation project took 100 hours.

At the end of the project we were quite impressed by the software and the people at JDC Software (the UK based software developers). When we found a bug they fixed it within a day. When we asked for new functionality they added it within a week.

The project left us feeling that Easy Royalties could fill a niche for “affordable” standalone royalty software that can handle complex royalty contracts. With competitive standalone royalty software solutions at priced at $25,000+; too expensive for many publishers and non-profits, Easy Royalties priced at $500 (for 50 titles) to $10,000 USD (for unlimited titles) is  an affordable alternative.

As always, we recommend that publishers evaluate all of the available software solutions before making a purchase decision. You need to find the one that will best meet your current and future requirements. Each royalty software application has strengths and weaknesses. For information on competitive solutions you may wish to visit www.royaltysoftware.net  or www.bookpublishingsoftware.net .
